A young poet living with his family in a cramped, urban apartment meditates on the cycle of life as the interior space around him morphs through the cycle of seasons in this opera written, composed and directed by Majewski and featuring the Polish National Symphony Orchestra and the Silesian Opera Chorus. Filled with beautiful imagery and transcendent orchestral work, the film presents a world where youthful energy and the nature triumph over the banality of the commonplace.
